Curriculum Sustainability

Curriculum Development

In an effort to go green, the college has added academic programs and modified existing programs. Learn what the College of Lake County has done for Curriculum Sustainability.

Water Sustainability

As the population of Lake County and Greater Chicago continues to grow, the college is collaborating with other agencies in promoting water conservation and addressing future needs for safe drinking water. And with Lake Michigan, many inland lakes and wetlands so prevalent in the county, conserving surface waters is another initiative.
